Matins readings for the second week after the Nativity

The Benedictine Patristic readings at Matins differ from the Roman this Sunday, and are unfortunately not available online as far as I can find.  Accordingly, I won't make a separate post for the Sunday, I'll just list what they are for reference purposes.

**I should note though, that readings set for the Roman Office this Sunday (both homilies by St Bernard) are those that were used in the Benedictine Office up until the 1962-3 revision of the breviary, and can be found online over at Divinum Officium.
